Democratic National Committee Betrays Younger Voters With Corruption

Democratic National CommitteeThe worst thing about the corruption exposed within the Democratic National Committee is that many younger voters have been disillusioned. The political process is already considered a turnoff and corrupt for many younger people. After this scandal, can anyone really blame them for being turned off and dissolution?

Many of these younger voters, were people who have never voted before. Because of this scandal within the Democratic National Committee, many of them will probably be further alienated and never bother to vote. Their current attitude will be genuine. For something like this to happen at a time when the Democrats are trying to attract younger people into the system, is a disaster.

As an older person, I can’t say as I really blame them a damn bit for having these feelings. If I were in the position, I would probably be alienated right along with them. Disillusionment with the Democratic Party is something that is not new for me. Over 20 years ago I became so pissed off with the Democratic Party that I left and joined the Green Party; something I have never regretted.

After the revelation by Donna Brazile, in her new book, that corruption within the Democratic National Committee was real, I am thinking very actively of rejoining the Green Party out of disgust and a feeling of betrayal. I rejoined the Democratic Party just so I could vote for Senator Bernie Sanders, someone I strongly feel is capable of being a great president. In my opinion, Senator Bernie Sanders is just what this country needs and deserves.

The Democratic National Committee has shown itself to be shortsighted, not to mention entirely partisan, by accepting Hillary Clinton as their candidate for president of the United States. America could have done better and deserved better. Don’t get me wrong, because I don’t feel that Hillary Clinton is a corrupt person. The reason I don’t support her is that she isn’t the best candidate. Hillary Clinton represents the status quo that I hate more than anything. She has too many ties to Wall Street and big business to make me feel comfortable with her as a candidate. Over the years, she has taken too many campaign contributions from the healthcare industry and big Pharma, both of whom I don’t trust to give the best healthcare system for a deserving populace that badly needs one.

As long as the Democratic Party insists on running a status quo candidate, I refuse to support them. This country needs a true progressive candidate, not another “player within the system” like Hillary or anyone else. We need a true progressive.

If the Democratic Party is incapable of giving us that, then maybe we should continue denying them our support. Perhaps they will change the practice of partisan politics within the party when voters start leaving the Democratic Party. Even though by doing so we run much risk of surrendering to the Right, the risk is worth it. Donald Trump is probably going to ruin the United States and if the Democratic Party doesn’t try to at least save us the indignity of having your country flushed down the toilet by Trump and his minions, then what good are they?

Russian Sabotage In The American Election

Russia was very likely responsible for the hack that has upended the DNC.

Russian Sabotage In The American Election.

The evidence seems to be growing that there has been Russian sabotage in the American election.  Even though the outcry from American politicians, especially those in the DNC (Democratic National Committee), we shouldn’t be surprised that another country would try doing what we have been guilty.  In a weird way, it’s like “political Karma” has come around to haunt us.

What I’m referring to is the American government’s successful attempt to sabotage Australian election of 1975, when the CIA was successful in unseating the prime minister, Gough Whitlam.  The US government felt that Prime Minister Whitlam was a threat to American interests, primarily because he was opposed to the war in Vietnam.  American sabotage of the 1975 election began several years earlier, during the Nixon administration.

In the current case of Russian sabotage in the American election, they have hacked the servers the Democratic National Committee and leaked sensitive emails to the press.  These emails are embarrassing to the DNC, especially candidate Hillary Clinton, as she battles Donald Trump for the presidency. The Russian sabotage is half-day because

The Russian sabotage is being committed, probably with the blessing of Vladimir Putin, because they want Donald Trump to win the election because Trump is more likely to turn a blind eye to Russian aggression.  Trump has said that he will not interfere if the Russians were to attack our European allies, something that is extremely distressing.

Even though the Russian sabotage of our critical election is something that we should not condone, we should not forget that we have also been guilty of the same thing in our sabotage of the Australian election of 1975.  The only difference between the Russians and us is that we were successful in our underhanded efforts and the attempted Russian sabotage has failed to achieve its goal.  Both the Russians and the Americans deserve condemnation for their attempts to stand in the way of real democracy.

This should anger EVERYONE

Bernie Sanders for President

There’s something I need to share with you, Blane, and it’s probably going to anger you. It should probably anger everyone. Here it is:

Our opponent is bending campaign finance rules to their breaking point all so Wall Street fat cats and people like Walmart’s Alice Walton can get away with giving hundreds of thousands of dollars in a single contribution to benefit the Clinton campaign.

You already know about the fundraiser Hillary Clinton held where a couple could contribute $353,000 to sit at a table with George Clooney. That money doesn’t go directly to the Clinton campaign, it goes to something called the “Hillary Victory Fund” – another account that has raised almost $35 million.

Well, for MONTHS the Clinton campaign has been saying the primary purpose of that fund is to support the DNC and state parties. But that’s not even close to true.

According to the Hillary Victory Fund’s most recent FEC report, the vast majority of the money they spent in 2016 – $25 MILLION – went directly towards helping the Clinton campaign itself.

So, what can we do about it? We can either sit back and shrug our shoulders at yet another obscene injustice. Or, we can fight. I say we fight.

Contribute $50 to Bernie’s campaign today to help us win New York and as a way of saying you have had ENOUGH of the way Hillary Clinton’s campaign is funding its campaign and super PACs.

So, this is distressing, but it’s probably to be expected. The Clinton campaign has raised the majority of its money from people giving the maximum amount of money under the law and her super PACs have raised more than $15 million from Wall Street and the financial industry alone.

Do you believe we can change a corrupt system by taking its money? Bernie Sanders says no, and that’s the choice New Yorkers face on Tuesday.

The choice you face right now, is are you willing to contribute $50 to fight back and win this primary, the White House and take our country back from the billionaire class? You can do that here:

This is the most important week and a half of the campaign. How we respond in this moment could mean the difference between victory and defeat.
